Another side of the exhibition;
Home Of Art proudly presents Kariatides Duo with Elliot Simpson, guitar and Nick Thess at percussions.

Can you imagine a gallery where you can spend your free time, read a book, listen to unique live music, enjoy your beer with friends, and still being surrounded by art and discover new aspects of our world?!

HOME OF ART is all this, and together with Kariatides Duo we decided to turn our exhibition into a musical surrealistic travel, through the colours, the ideas and the sounds that have inspired some of our main artists.

Special thanks to composers Theofilos Lamprianidis and Fanis Zachopoulos who have composed the music especially for this event.

If you want to experience a totally new “art-tour” you’re welcome to come on Sunday 29 March at 17.00 at Home of Art in Amsterdam!
Entrance is 3 euros.

Taraf de Haïdouks in Paradiso Noord Amsterdam

In 2012 I first wrote about the Tolhuistuin: (click) , In 2014 I co-organised a party there: (click) and now I’d just like to point to you a concert of an amazing band I can’t wait to dance to in the new club on the same complex; Paradiso Noord.

The Taraf de Haïdouks is a group of Gypsy “Lautari” (traditional musicians) who come from the little modest Romanian village of Clejani in the Valachian countryside. Ever since their first visit to Western Europe back in 1991, Taraf de Haïdouks have been considered as the epitome of Gypsy music’s fabulous vitality. They consist of dozen brilliant instrumentalists and singers, with ages ranging roughly from 20 to 80 and the band members seem to have been relatively unaffected by their succes they’ve retained their sense of humour, and their way of life.

Taraf de Haïdouks consists of:
Gheorghe Falcaru: flute
Gheorghe Anghel “Caliu”: violin
Robert Gheorghe: violin
Constantin Lautaru “Costica”: violin, vocals
Marin Manole “Marius”: accordion
P. Marin Manole: accordion, vocals
Filip Simeonov: clarinet
Paul Giuclea “Pasalan”: violin, vocals
Ion Tanase “Ionica”: cimbalom

In their new album “Of Lovers, Gamblers and Parachute Skirts”, Taraf de Haïdouks are revisiting some of the old styles which have enchanted Western audiences on their earlier albums: Gypsy love songs, old-school dance tunes, Turkish-flavoured instrumentals, and poignant Romanian ballads. AND THEY’RE COMING TO AMSTERDAM on Friday February 13 TO PRESENT THEIR NEW ALBUM! Presale has started!

Admission 20, – incl. day membership.
Doors open 19:30
Supporting program: La Manouche @ 20:00
Before and after the favorite gypsy tunes of DJ Tommi
